does or can degenerative disc disease cause holes in the bone? I just need to know.


  • I would like to know as well. Welcome to the forum, enjoy.

    Had PLIF in 2008 and a Laminectomy. One level fusion, L4-L5.
  • I have no idea but have never heard that it will. Not that it means anything just never heard about it before.
  • Well if its an end plate fracture, it would be a hole in the bone/vertebrea. Otherwise know as scmoral node and DDD, so I would say yes. My mri showed scmoral nodes and some doctors are calling it DDD and I have several end plate fractures which are holes. Hope this helps.
